Contributions to this book question the concept of the clash of cultures. The challenge to the West does not lie in the monolith of Islam turning aggressively outward to Europe and the US, but in the rivalries between regimes ruling over societies divided by an imbalance in wealth and power.

Table of Contents

International Affairs- "One of the many good things about this book is the ample contribution from academics living and working in the region; they add to the immediacy of the problems and to the integrity of the analysis. The book also calls into question the otiose concept of the clash of cultures, only to prevalent recently. What it makes plain is that the challenge to the West does not lie in the monolithic nature of Islam turning aggressively outward towards Europe and the United States but in the rivalries between regimes ruling over societies increasingly divided by an imbalance of wealth and power."

Mediterranean Politics

"A number of practical suggestions might have been useful here but there is little doubt that this volume does a good job in highlighting the problems that the Euro-Mediterranean Partnership is facing and will be facing in the future."

Millennium- " These essays offer a sobering analysis of the challenges facing the Mediterranean region without forcing the reader to undergo an ideological conversion in the process. This is perhaps the greatest strength of the book. "

Choice- " Highly recommended for upper-division undergraduates through faculty
